Favourite subjects at school

I enjoyed English when I was in school, particularly when we able to complete our own creative writing. I still love to read but definitely prefer more fantasy fiction like George R Martins Game of Thrones. Still waiting for the book series to end!


I’ve played squash since I was in college but don’t play as often as I should. I have recently discovered the world of VR and now make time to go to VR gym classes like body combat and boxing. 

About Me

I was born in Dundee but we moved to Birmingham when I was 2. My first degree is Applied Psychology and computing and I have a Masters in Educational leadership. I have also recently completed my NPQH. I’ve carried on my education because I believe in a life long love of learning and my goal is to foster that in others. I am excited at becoming part of the Pingle Academy as Vice Principal and look forward to getting to know the students and community over the coming years.
